MEDIA OF THE WEEK

The stuff that's stuck in my head this week

Started watching the series Firefly and holy Celestia, what I wouldn't give for a crossover story of this show with ponies!

Volare: I think Vince Lombardi said it best: what the hell, man?!

Eh-heh, let's just say time has been flying by and leaving me in the dust as of late. :twilightsheepish:

What's been going on since I last posted anything on here besides story comments and such:

-Work hours increased dramatically due to co-workers leaving in droves.  Turns out the new manager didn't gel well with hardly anyone, as there's been a near-total staff change-over since he showed up.  He's a good salesperson, but he micro-manages WAAAY too much.  Anyways, at one point I was up over 60 hours for a week before upper management got wind of it and shut that crap down.  I'll talk on that in a bit.

-I've been busy preparing for Halloween this year.  Now if any of ya'll know me by now, you'll know that Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year.  I tend to go all out finding new ways to scare the hell outta people that come to my door for candy (and now mostly for scares since I've been doing this sorta thing for the past 13 years).  Why so much preparation, though?  Well, I'm dressing as a very particular character, one that requires me to build up my leg strength, stamina, balance, and ability to walk around on these in low-light and glaring conditions:

And they're a great leg workout too.  (Trust me, you don't find out how outta shape your legs are till you strap these on and try running/jumping.  I'm up to 5 miles on them every other day now!)

Volare: Ok, I'm legitimately impressed now.  But what the heck character are you dressing up as that needs stilts and all that-

Volare: ....mommy!

Dash:

Soooo, yeah, gonna be Slenderman and I am SO looking forward to it!  My GF is going to help as well, playing Slenderman's Proxy from "Slender: The Arrival."  We're gonna get people SO bad!

-Ahem, anyways, where was I?  Oh, right.  Another big reason for the delay:

The 8th Series of Doctor Who has been going strong for a while now, but it's going to be winding down soon-damn can't believe I'm already saying that!  It's been a great season so far, and Peter Capaldi is the Doctor House of the Who-world.  All he's missing is a cane and an addiction to Vicodin and he'd be set! XD

-Also, my GF got me into a particular anime series...a few of you may know it:

Seriously the most insane, hilarious, ridiculous anime I've seen since Gurren Lagaan. XD  

I say it's like MLP: FiM-don't knock it till you try it.

-But the REALLY big thing I've been preparing for during my free time outside of work has been this convention:

Nightmare Nights Dallas

Last year's was my first convention ever, and now with a few under my belt I'm hoping to be less lost and confused about how these things work.  So it should be fun!  (also, we got Mitch Larson again!)

-It's also come to my attention that I'm to be moved off of general car invoices and hoods at work to strictly mechanical service writing-my real job-ASAP.  I'm being offered a choice of hours, uniforms (EFFIN FINALLY!!!), pay rate, commission rate, etc.  Along with that will come a strict limitation on my hours so I don't get totally burned out like I did this summer and there's NOTHING that the micromanaging store manager can do about it!  

So, yeah, I WAS planning on looking for a new job as soon as the convention ended (and I still will keep my options open and my resume out there, mind you) but it's looking like in the very near future I'll be fully back into the swing of things here!

Now that leads me to my next topic: what to write first.  I've got a load of ideas bouncing around in my head, including a dramatic and touching story my GF and I came up with about Derpy's emotional attachment to everypony she delivers the mail to.

Yes I know I've got big major things to continue (that's going to be taking place simultaneously, so don't fret), one of which in particular I've promised I'll finish first before posting up anything else on Blue Angel (still slowly re-reading and editing that behemoth).

Gonna finish this little booger first, if things go well:

CMC's On A Plane

Stay tuned, folks!

Love ya all and again, thanks for your continued patience and support!

Oh, btw...

PLEASE for the love of Luna go give this guy some love, for out of the kindness of his heart and with no prompting, he was inspired to create one of the best pieces of fanart for Blue Angel ever:

So if any of ya'll were wondering what Volare looks like outside of the Pony Generator...well, this is pretty damn close!  And RD looks pretty badass as well!

Thanks man!

The image can be found here on his deviantArt page: Volare and RD

And here he is on Fimfiction: Contrail09

Go glomp him or something!!

I'd also like to extend thanks to aFluffyGuy for his drawing of ol Spike-head too!

Go give him some love as well!

And so without further ado...

Hello!!!??? Anybody there? If you are, then Hello!! I have a real quick question! Your story Blue angel. Is kinda lacking In updates. I don't mean to be judgmental!!:twilightsheepish::twilightblush: I just want to know if you have any idea if you are going to update soon. This is one of the most awesome stories. :rainbowwild: to see it die would be a shame.

>>1368705 Just making sure you were ok, dude

And yeah, it HAS been a while :twilightsheepish:

#271 · 8w, 6d ago · · ·

Hello, my friend. I have an important message for you:

Poopledunks.

No idea what it means, but I think it's important. :twilightsmile:

Also, in regards to that poem I had written, I was not fine at the time, contrary I previously said. It was a strange situation in which I had either been betrayed by a friend or I had betrayed a friend. Obviously, if you know me, I don't like either of those situations. I mean, there's a reason why Loyalty's my favorite.

Anyways, just thought I'd pop by and say hello, since it's been a while since we last hung out. :twilightsmile:

#270 · 9w, 1d ago · · ·

So Blue Angel is awesome and, having family who have served and as a person who is considering serving in the military, I do enjoy how you've tried to stay as true as possible to military jargon in the story

#269 · 9w, 2d ago · · ·

Next time Volare does music in the story, he should do the DOCTOR WHO THEME!!! :flutterrage:
